Planners, planners, planners. What is up with all of them?? I’ve been through more types than I care to admit, and after a recent attempt at a Planner Pad (which, in and of itself, a FABULOUS planner) and finally admitting that I seriously don’t have that much to plan and so I tend to do more logging, I decided to give the BuJo a try again.
Rather than buying a new planner – though, I will be buying one of these beauties from J. B. Welly for next year!! – I took my already-in-progress journal/commonplace book/notebook and added the bujo to it. It’s a five section notebook, so I started the bujo in the 4th section so I’ll have room for the rest of the year.
I’m keeping it simple this time. Last time I watched way, way too many videos and had too many sections and it just went off the rails. Now I have The Alastair Method as my monthly setup (with a change brought on by this picture) simple daily pages, and a few collections. My master key is based on the one Dee Martinez created, plus her double margins on the left, too. Add to that Ryder’s tracker to the right of each page, and I’m good.
I refuse to look at all those gorgeous bujo works of art that are all over the internet, especially the ones with the calligraphic handwriting because I just can’t. My handwriting has gone to hell from the tremors (and I even dropped color-coding), so it’s better this way. Really, it is. *sniffle*

PS: is calligraphic a word?
